Waiting on Wednesday #2

Hey guys and welcome back to my blog! Today I'll be participating in a weekly meme that I've been neglecting: Waiting on Wednesday. This meme is hosted by Breaking the Spine. Each Wednesday, the participants showcase an upcoming read that we are excited about. This week I chose...

United by Melissa Landers!

Here is the goodreads blurb: *WARNING FOR SOME MILD SPOILERS*
After thwarting a deadly coup and saving the alliance between their worlds, Cara and Aelyx have finally earned a break. Their tiny island colony is everything they dreamed it would be―days spent gathering shells on the beach and nights in each other’s arms.

But the vacation is short-lived.

The treaty between Earth and L’eihr has awakened an ancient force that threatens to destroy them all. The Aribol, mysterious guardians charged with maintaining interstellar peace, deem the alliance a threat to the galaxy. They order a separation of the races, decreeing humans and L’eihrs must return to their own planets within the month or face extinction. In fact, they already have agents in place on Earth, ready to begin.

With the clock ticking, Aelyx and Cara assemble a team of colonists and race back to Earth, where they unite with old friends to solve the mystery of who the Aribol are, what they want, and the real reason the alliance has provoked them. As tensions build to a full-scale war, Aelyx and Cara must fight harder than ever―not just for their future, but for the survival of both their worlds.
I'm so excited for this book for so many reasons! There was a time this series was just going to be two books, and I'm elated that there will be a third and final book. Everything wrapped up quite nicely in the previous novel, except for one plot line. 

Aelyx and Cara are such great characters and I cannot wait to explore their story again in this final novel. United releases on August 2, 2016!

What's your pick for the week?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I'll see you soon with another post!

Happy Reading!

  1. I've read Alienated, but never got the chance to pick up the sequel. Isn't it nice when the authors do us a favor and give us what we ask? That happened with the Shiver trilogy by Shiefvater. The main reason I read them were for two characters that we really didn't get to see go full circle in the original three books. Then we got a book JUST with those two characters. =3

    1. Yes! It's always great when an author gives the readers what they want! I'm so happy Stiefvater did that. Even though I didn't really like Sinner that much (I wasn't in the right mood) I was still so happy that Cole and Isabel got the ending they deserved. Thanks for visiting Brittany! :D
